Backlight I dropped my phone and the backlight only goes on when the numbers aren't visible. But if I apply pressure e.g. press on the display screen it lights up when numbers are visible. What's wrong with it?

My screen of my phone is black. You cant see anything but when I apply pressure with my thumb on the screen and continuing to hold it it lights up, Whats wrong? How to get it fixed.

Like other LCD screens, your phone's screen has a little backlight. If that light goes out, the display keeps working but you just can't see it. There's a broken connection somewhere in the circuit providing the power to that light. Often this kind of trouble shows up if the phone's been dropped or something heavy has landed on it. When you press on the display, it restores that connection and the light comes back on. Finding that bad connection might be difficult because of how this equipment is made; it's usually not as simple as an obvious broken wire. Special tools are often needed just to open the phone, and other equipment for troubleshooting and repair.

Unfortunately, this isn't something you're likely to be able to repair yourself. You might try taking the phone to your service provider or an authorized agent. They may have a repair service or offer a flat-rate exchange price. Call them to see what options you have. You might even find the phone is covered by some kind of insurance. If this is a pay-as-you-go type of phone, like a TracFone, you can purchase a replacement, then activate it in place of the damaged one. Contact the company by phone or check their website for options.

I hope this has helped. If so, please take a moment to give a thoughtful rating. Thanks for using Fixya!

Touch screen goes wild on Samsung s5230 star offset between touch and effective response up to 60 mm. Obviously most the time not able to use phone ( to reach area in display real touch area out of display...

Seems the X/Y axis is misaligned from the device being dropped or excessive pressure applied to the touch area. Recalibration won't work because there is a physical condition Vs mechanical or other issues. Touch screen replacement may be the only option.

Monitor goes in and out

do you mean to say that your system shuts down when you are not pressing the laptop ie, the power light also goes off when you are not applying the pressure, or just the monitor goes blank and power light is on when there is no pressure
in both the above cases i think you should call technical support for your laptop, because it seems like a hard ware problem

Backlight display not working

Hey Dannes1956,

The Motorola V3m has a light sensor, which is visible just above the right soft key -- the key above the CLR button. This light sensor turns the backlight on when you press a key in the dark and disables the keypad backlight when you are in a well-lit area.

Your phone sounds like it's operating normally. I believe they disabled the option to activate or deactivate that feature.

Hope this helps,

Shine a bright light on it and see if you can see and resemblance of the display on the screen. If you can see a display, the backlighting on the screen is broken - if you can't see a display, it's likely the screen is broken or the display controller is broken. Backlight would be the cheapest fix, usually. Also, you should be able to transfer your phone numbers over to a new phone by using the same SIM card so long as the phone numbers were stored on the SIM card - the only way to find out is to put it in another phone and check out the address book.
